Children’s titles for iPad and iPhone are a fast growing category of app downloads. One of the creators of stories for children is D.K. Smith. Smith has produced 3 titles featuring the socratic couple – Sock and Boot. Each title starts with a question and the title characters then engage in an adventure in pursuit of answers. Graphics, narration, music, spelling – a multimedia experience for children just learning to read.
“My goal is to inspire young minds and open the doors to expression and create an avenue to stimulate parent/child bonding through reading.” – Says D.K Smith, the author and creator of ‘Sock n Boots’.
The Sock n Boots franchise of stories was created to not only teach young children valuable life lessons, but also to stimulate positive thinking while building a bond between parents and children or teachers and students.
Children that read build active imaginations, wider vocabularies and are proven to be better students.It is a fact that reading aloud to a child has numerous positive benefits to the child and the parent /child relationship, and the goal of the Sock n Boots franchise of stories is to transform story time into an interactive bonding time.
The richness of applications and things to do with these ubiquitous computing devices is wonderous. And it is only just beginning.
